Attempting to apply multiple PTF's to XCOM R12.
These PTF's resulted in STATUS = REC APP ERR, but are pre-reqs for RO96651, RO97232, RO97936, RO98273, and RO98302 which are also STATUS = REC APP ERR.
My question: Should I simply not introduce these seven PTF's into my environment as they do not apply to my environment?
Multiple errors like this are in the output:
GIM23911E ** LINK-EDIT PROCESSING FOR SYSMOD RO96344 FAILED FOR MODULE XCOMCAPI IN LMOD XCOMCINT IN THE SMPLTS LIBRARY.
Problems with access to OMVS/USS objects which are required to relink XCOM module XCOMCINT
Release : 12.0
Component : CA XCOM Data Transport for z/OS
It is necessary to resolve the problems with access to OMVS/USS objects which are required to relink XCOM module XCOMCINT
It is important to apply this maintenance, because any future fixes for TCP/IP or compression methods will require all of the same fixes as pre-requisites. If an emergency fix is required to that module going forward, this problem could cause a serious delay in being able to apply a fix.
The only real solution to this problem is to regain authority to access the necessary USS files.
